Let's get Benwikere and Norman out there.


#2891959 Huddlers attending Panthers vs Patriots 8/22/14

Please keep me in the loop. I'll be available to get to the stadium any time as my girlfriend lives about 20 minutes from Gillette. I'd love to get a Huddle picture and a couple beers at a bar in Patriot Place.

#2887775 The last training camp daily thread

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 12 August 2014 - 12:38 PM

@BlackBlueReview: Camp broke more than two hours ago. Most players are likely back in CLT already. Cotchery and Avant just left the Wofford cafeteria.

@tomsorensen: Panther camp ends but TE Brandon Williams isn't finished. Coaches, team cameras gone. Williams sees lone remaining tackling dummy. HIts it.


#2886867 Kelvin Benjamin - Aside from the touchdown....

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 11 August 2014 - 07:16 PM

Another thing:

All it takes is for some one to be wrong in a few areas in the ratings, to slide you down.

Remember, if their charting 10 WR's, and let's 100 players, they have to rate them all. Because of this, they can't always spend too much time with one player (especially initially). So they grade them in different facets for an overall score. Now here's where I guy like Benjamin can slide in a stacked WR draft.

Let's say for experience; he's dinged low.

For drops, he's dinged avg.

For speed he's rated avg (though he stumbles out of his 40 YD dash).

And for Route Running, he's dinged low.

Now it's not because he's necessarily bad at these things per se. However, it's because he's deemed "in-experienced or a project", and you have other more "experienced" "NFL ready" receivers available, so people think "project" subconsciously, thus his overall score drops in comparison to "more experienced", "alleged" NFL ready receivers.

Now, if they're wrong, or Kelvin rapidly improves on some of these areas (experience, speed, route running, and/or or drops), then you end up with a much better prospect than his draft position would indicate.

Happens all the time, especially in deep drafts. Some of the best players of all time were the 5-6 QB, WR (or whoever) chosen.


Well said and I agree. Thank you for taking the time to write it all out. We seem to have hit the jackpot in the first round once again. Next year I hope the Panthers make it 5 gems in a row.

Also, I think his biggest impact outside of being a legitimate red zone and receiving threat is going to be the attention he draws opening up the center of the field for Greg and co. and the running game. If he can be a threat to score every nap I think some of our woes in the running game may be masked if they can't stack the box.

Benjamin gets deep for long touchdown from Cam. #Panthers

Any chance you will be printing this off and giving it to Brandon? I think he would be very appreciative.

Be a gentleman and bring a copy of that with you to New England? Pretty please. 




#2883147 WR Brandon Coleman (the guy that's taller than KB) Most Improved

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 08 August 2014 - 11:10 PM

Ouch that backfired rather quickly. See where harping on stats gets you big fella?

 

Speaking of, Coleman is taller than KB and you're heavier than half the linemen in the league, why aren't in you in the NFL?




#2883095 WR Brandon Coleman (the guy that's taller than KB) Most Improved

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 08 August 2014 - 10:52 PM

Seriously bro, are you going to argue punters giving up some distance for more hang time to give cover unit more time to get there, if you're going to argue somehing so basic, you need to read a football for dummies.

 

You were the one saying "Yeah but but but they were purposely kicking the ball high" so that limited his punting return yardage. You brought that up as a legitimate counterpoint to Red posting his stats and now your panties are in a wad for me discussing it further?




#2883077 WR Brandon Coleman (the guy that's taller than KB) Most Improved

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 08 August 2014 - 10:47 PM

Considering they were purposely punting it high so he wouldn't have anywhere to go kinda affected the yardage, the point is he lined up all over the place and did multiple things. But I guess he wasn't as productive as KB. Oh yeah, Saints also won their game.

 

You realize punters try to get hang-time on the ball literally every time they punt for the most part? Is punting high a thing newly implemented into the NFL specifically to combat the return ability of Cooks?

 

I'm convinced you can't talk football outside of posting stats. 




#2883042 Cam who?

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 08 August 2014 - 10:34 PM

Blond on the right wants the D. 




#2882973 Tight ends

Posted by OnlyPantherFaninMaine on 08 August 2014 - 10:16 PM

I'd be feeling great about the position if we went into the season with Olsen, Dickson, and Williams. Thats a very solid trio.
